  • CNN: Anchor Wolf Blitzer wasn't celebrating Clinton nomination (video at link)

    The Hill ^ | July 29, 2016 | Jessie Hellmann
    CNN is pushing back on claims that one of its lead news anchors was seen celebrating Hillary Clinton's historic nomination for president Thursday night, calling the accusation "absurd." A video circulating online shows anchor Wolf Blitzer dancing to Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" while drinking from a glass and waving his hands in the air, apparently at the network's CNN Grill in Philadelphia. "CNN celebrates Hillary: Blitzer toasts speech, dancing, party!" reads a headline at the conservative Drudge Report, linking to the video. But a CNN spokesman said Friday that Blitzer was not showing bias toward the Democratic nominee, only celebrating...

    Maybe they were happy it was over, or maybe they were celebrating “history” being made — as they repeated all week — by their preferred candidate. Regardless, cameras captured CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer and Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger drinking wine and dancing with delegates as “Sweet Caroline” played over the loud speakers at the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention. CNN aired video of the two taking it all in: Blitzer with a glass of white wine in his hand, and Borger clapping and singing along.

    (CNN)Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday his whistleblowing website might release "a lot more material" relevant to the US electoral campaign. Assange was speaking in a CNN interview following the release of nearly 20,000 emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee by suspected Russian hackers. However, Assange refused to confirm or deny a Russian origin for the mass email leak, saying Wikileaks tries to create ambiguity to protect all its sources. "Perhaps one day the source or sources will step forward and that might be an interesting moment some people may have egg on their faces. But to exclude certain...

    The first day of the Democratic National Convention is over—and the Trans-Pacific Partnership was probably the major punching bag of the night. There is vicious opposition within the Democratic Party over this free trade agreement. An agreement that Hillary Clinton once called the gold standard for free trade deals. She has since walked back her praise. Yet, Donald Trump criticized free trade as well, and is actively trying to court Sanders supporters based on the issue of trade. The anti-TPP sentiment is stronger here than on any other issue that's been mentioned.— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) July 26, 2016 Sanders forced...

    When a young and dumb CNN reporter covering events in Cleveland this week chose to ask an elderly black supporter of GOP nominee Donald Trump a race-baiting question about the candidate’s alleged racism, the supporter unleashed a rapid-fire torrent of truth. “I’m sick of this race and divide!” the supporter exclaimed. “It’s always divide and conquer! It’s a scam! And I know it’s not going to get on CNN!” Indeed. The hacks at CNN would never in a million years willingly expose their mainly brainwashed audience to the existence of a black man who supports Trump.

    Watching MSNBC and CNN in their post-game analysis and they are saying that his speech is a warning of a "dark dystopian" America. A few of the commentators actually said "White Identity". I could not believe it. I was floored. They say that if you are in an argument and your opponent's only retort is that you are a racist (or sexist, etc), then the opponent has lost the argument. If that is the case, then Trump hit one out of the park. I was very impressed tonight. I did not expect that.

Mary Ann Mendoza, Sabine Durden, and Jamiel Shaw, who each lost a child through crimes committed by illegal aliens, spoke from the heart about why they supported Donald Trump’s proposal to enforce immigration law and build a border wall.

    It seems CNN's version of the amateur video taken by a storekeeper is different from how it appears at other sites, including CBS and the Young Turks. In the CNN version, the first gunshot sounds - a series of three - come earlier. This can readily be observed because the point when the three gunshots conclude doesn't match up visually. In the CBS and YT versions, the gunshots conclude just as the camera image blurs and the officer on top of Sterling rolls off of him. In the CNN version, the three gunshots conclude while the struggle is still going...

And even France’s efforts to allow for the free expression of religion has, I think arguably in some cases, produced more isolation and more radicalization.” In the 2 p.m. ET hour of CNN Newsroom, anchor Brooke Baldwin teed up senior international correspondent Nima Elbagir to make an identical argument: “Make your point again for people who are just joining us.

Mike Pence as his running mate with a tweet on Friday, Clinton's campaign sprang into action, while Trump's team missed several opportunities to capitalize on its own news and be the first to frame the narrative around the new partnership. Within 15 minutes of Trump's initial tweet, Clinton responded with a video outlining a point-by-point case against Pence.

As odious as Britain’s elites are; boy, are they cleverer than ours. Take the impromptu interview, on June 28, which Richard Quest, CNN’s imported British broadcast journalist, conducted with Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party. Farage had emerged exhilarated from the coven that is the...
